I’m a strong believer in quite a few things in my life and this post represents two (2) of those.
Support small business.
Eat great food.
Galindo’s is both of these and represent them very well. Here you see my wonderful feast from last night. Chicken fajita’s with all the fixings. I don’t know what Chef Erik Galindo marinates this chicken in, but it’s clearly bursting with flavor and will get you addicted at the first bite. The dish comes with plenty of fixings including shredded lettuce, creamy guacamole, zesty salsa, and creamy beans just to name a few. It’s all prepared fairly promptly and served piping hot. You get nachos while you wait with your choice of 3 salsa’s (mild, hot, and verde), but if you’re in the know you’ll ask for the green jalapeno sauce. It’s pretty amazing stuff.
If fajita’s aren’t your thing then I suggest the enchilada’s. I get all ground beef slathered in red sauce. YUM! They are known for their torta’s but I have ytet to try them, maybe during another visit.. if I can break away from this fajita crack!
When Honda introduced the new Type-R series in 2017 I had to have one. They don’t bring that name to the U.S. often, so when you have a chance to snatch up a beautiful piece of machinery such as this, you DO IT. Originally I planned on keeping her completely stock but as time passed I began to see the significant strides others were making with FBO’s (Full Bolt On’s) without molesting the car into oblivion. I decided it was my turn to throw myself into the fray of upgrading fun.

New shoes for Roxy. This is the first modification that was a need (definitely not a want) for this lady. The OEM (Original Equipment Manufactured) wheels are nice but, functionally just not feasible for everyday American roads, especially those found in Michigan! I wrapped them in Michelin Pilot Sport S tires at 255/35/ZR19 (96Y) inflated to 32lbs.
This change completed changed how the car felt and it was a vast improvement over the stock tire and wheel setup. More grip, more durability, more everything. Response was great, ride the best. No rubbing, no torque-steer.
Here are some pictures of the final product:
I choose BBS CH-R, 19″x9″ wheels with a +47 offset. They break up the black very nicely and give the car a much better look. Here are some additional angles for you to drool over.
